Provides Enhanced Mobility and Security With Third-Party Connection Managers, VPN Clients, VoIP Clients

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 5, 2005 -- ipUnplugged, the leading provider of Mobile IP products and Mobile VPN solutions, today announced the launch of its Universal Mobile IP client designed for integration with various third-party connection managers, VPN clients, and VoIP clients.

The ipUnplugged Universal Mobile IP Client is available as a developer kit with APIs and client software.

The ipUnplugged Universal Mobile IP Client functionality was recently announced to be included as the core client mobility component for a world leading networking vendor, for their end-to-end IP Mobility solution.

"The increased usage of wireless networks such as WLAN and 3G, combined with the emergence of exciting technologies like WiMAX, creates the need for a mobility client to handle IP based seamless handovers in a multi-network environment. Being standards based, and not tied to a specific network technology, the Universal Mobile IP Client provides a perfect platform for this," said Padraig Moran, CTO ipUnplugged.

Universal Mobile IP Client Meets Latest IETF Standards - API & Licensing

Vendors and operators who plan to launch services and products for multi-network environments have now the option to license the core Mobile IP components from ipUnplugged. The Universal Mobile IP client includes a complete set of features for Mobile IP, adhering to the latest IETF standards, with APIs and the option to add on VPN-level security. The client can be integrated with external Connection Managers, VoIP clients, VPN clients, and more, within WLAN/Wimax/3G environments, providing a solution for seamless mobility for such applications.

Using the Universal Mobile IP Client in a Mobile VPN solution enables secure, seamless roaming for enterprise employees both inside and outside the office. The user will be able to move between LAN, Wireless LAN, GPRS/3G/CDMA, and broadband networks in a secure and seamless way, without any configuration, user interaction or need for the user to think about the mobility or security.

By being fully standards compliant, the Universal Mobile IP Client can be used with existing Mobile IP agents from ipUnplugged and other vendors, adhering to the standards.
